HC Deb 29 November 1965 vol 721 cc142-3W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will set out in tabular form in the OFFICIAL REPORT his estimate of how the costs of a £1,000 house were made up in 1938, respectively for labour, materials, land and finance, and the same figures for a similar house in 1958, 1964 and 1965.

Mr. MacColl

The only relevant information available to me relates to the cost (exclusive of land) of a local authority 3-bedroom house. The breakdown of costs is approximate:

of Bootle since 1946; how many of such dwellings have been built for rental; and how many applications to build such dwellings have been refused since that date by the local authority.

Mr. MacColl

Private enterprise completed 145 houses in the County Borough of Bootle between 1946 and September, 1965. Of these 31 were built for rental. Two applications for planning permission to build dwellings for renting have been refused but one of these was allowed by my right hon. Friend on appeal.
